Never forget!

“On this day…September 11th, 22 years ago, 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00 am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.”


“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.”

—President George W. Bush 2008

A dedication ceremony for the new Jake White trailhead kiosk at the Haystack Mountain trailhead.

Join the Wilmington Trails committee, Chimney Hill Owners Association and friends and family of Jake White for the unveiling of a newly fabricated trailhead kiosk. Double sided panels will display updated trail information for hikers on one side and a memorial on the other.

Jake’s daughter, Michelle O’Neil, will share a few words followed by a hike to the summit of Haystack for those interested.

This is a rain or shine event. (In case of severe weather the dedication will be moved to the Chimney Hill clubhouse.)
